Samsung’s new OLED display is for 5G smartphones for some reason

Samsung Display has unveiled a new OLED display for smartphones that the company says emits less blue light and uses less power than its earlier screens. And for some reason, the company is positioning the new screen as an “optimized OLED display for 5G smartphones,” although I don’t see any reason it couldn’t be used […]

Sharp’s flexible smartphone display folds in half… the other way

Samsung’s first foldable smartphone closes up like a book when you want to fold it in half. So does Huawei’s, Oppo’s and most of the other upcoming models we’ve seen so far (except for Xiaomi’s prototype, which has a tri-fold wallet-like design).

HP’s Spectre 15 x360 is getting an AMOLED display option

It’s a “FullVision” display, which means that like the LG G6, the new phone will have slim bezels. But while the G6 features an LCD display, the new phone will have a plastic OLED display […]

LG introduces 77 inch flexible, transparent OLED display

LG Display’s latest OLED screen combines a bunch of buzzwords: it’s big. It’s flexible. It’s transparent. And if you add all of those things up you’ve got a display that will most likely be really expensive (albeit really cool). Don’t expect to see the company’s new 77 inch transparent, flexible OLED display in home TVs […]

Samsung and LG smartphone displays with 4 curved edges under development?

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 smartphone features dual curved edges, with the display bending over the left and right sides of the display giving the phone a bezel-less design along its longest sides.
